The Managers - Germany & Brazil

THE OPPOSITION MANAGERS

 

GERMANY: JOACHIM LOW

World Cup-winning boss Low, now 57, is in his 11th year as Germany manager and the country’s longest-serving coach since Helmut Schoen, who spent 14 years in control.

Low was also assistant manager for two years under Jurgen Klinsmann before taking over after the World Cup finals in Germany in 2006.  A former West Germany Under-21 international, Low began his senior dugout career as a player-coach with FC Frauenfeld before becoming assistant at VfB Stuttgart and then replacing Ralph Fringer as manager in 1996. Further spells with Fenerbahce, Karlsruher, Adanaspor, Tirol Innsbruck and Austria Vienna followed.

In 2004, he got the call from Klinsmann to become his assistant with the German national team. Two years later, when Klinsmann stepped down, Low was named Germany head coach and guided the nation to their fourth World Cup triumph at Brazil 2014.

 

 

BRAZIL: TITE
Full name Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, Tite, aged 56, took charge of the Brazil national team in 2016. Born in Caxias do Sul, a city in Southern Brazil, his 11-year playing career as a defensive midfielder, spent entirely in his native country, spanned spells with Caxias, Esportivo, Portuguesa and Guarani. A year after hanging up his boots, Tite began his coaching career in 1990 with Gremio Atletico Guarany and is best known for his three spells in charge of Corinthians. He first managed the club in the 2004-2005 campaign and enjoyed plenty of success when he returned to the helm between 2010-2013. Tite led Corinthians to their first Copa Libertadores and second FIFA Club World Cup title. He won his second Brazilian Championship with Corinthians during his third spell at the club, which began in 2015, and replaced Dunga as Brazil boss in June 2016. Dunga had been dismissed following the team’s poor performance at the Copa America Centenario.
